Small FBM sat in roadside verge on what turned out to be quite a busy road.. Quite an interesting find too, on the way up the lane there was a flush bracket on a gate post! Found in good order and quite easy to locate.

First of four trigs of the day, and a FBM, walking NE of Macclesfield with my mate, Tracker Dog. While I was sure it was on the S side of the road and concentrated looking there, he found it on the other, at the junction of Buxton New Road and Bull Hill Lane, half hidden in the grass in front of the wall near the speed limit sign. On to Kerridge. Why were these FBM's not made larger and more prominent if they were so important?

The final location of my first day in the West Midlands. This FBM is in the roadside verge, tucked up against a dry stone wall. Itís a bit overgrown at the moment but still easy to find. Parking is a bit difficult; I stopped half off the road in a field gate just down Bull Hill Lane. The height plate has been removed from the FBM but that aside, itís in as good a condition as can be expected. The views are very pleasantÖ green rolling hills in three directions and a view over Macclesfield to the west.

There were 2 or 3 areas of flattened grass, someone else had been here recently! So it didnt take long to find this, even with all the grass. I took my life in my hands getting my car back onto the road, you cant see the road in either direction if you park where I did! Great scenery.
